Low-Tech Job Requests
Well it's official, I had the lowest level technical request ever today, troubleshooting fire
I had to get the old boiler going and then reactivate it's timers to get it all automated.
What is your lowest tech fix it job?

Having the British Gas engineer out once and being shown how to re pressurise the boiler by using a screw driver to unscrew a flat head screw vertically and then screwing it back in horizontally when the pressure reaches 1.0 bar.
So similar to yourself, except the timers on our boiler are physical switches

Unjamming a stapler... Well it was the main one from the office and therefore critical to the operation of the school.
They never did work out who jammed it and didn't say!

The lowest-tech fix I've ever performed is to move a book an inch to the left. Got a call complaining about menus and dialogue boxes closing almost as soon as clicked on, and when I arrived the teacher had their desk piled with papers and other clutter, with a book resting on the escape key. I only fell for that one once - I've "fixed" the same problem on the phone a dozen or more times since.

I got in a laptop trolley with a paper clip and pair of scissors. It hadn't been used for years and inside were 2 sony vaios from 1942.

At least that is still something electrical, it is possible to get more low tech!

I've been asked to change batteries (2x AA ones, not the funny little round "watch batteries") in a projector remote.

Resetting an AIT tape drive with a paperclip.

letting a class OUT of an IT room, with a pair of pliers when someone accidentally pulled the handle off the inside!

Moving a chair 1 inch.
Teacher was complaining that her Smartboard was acting weird and the cursor was all over the place.
Her chair was resting against the bottom corner so I moved it an inch and it magically fixed it

Not a fix but I was once told by an ex ICT Co-Ordinator that part of my job was to count all the pens and pencils in the dept.
